Review: Violectric HPA V200 amp - Page 123

post #1831 of 2660

sling5s, what dac are you using atm? Thinking of grabbing the v200 and using the bifrost till I have money for the v800s

post #1832 of 2660

I'm just using the optional dac that came with the v200.  I know many have said how mediocre it is, but I find it sufficient.  I know the v800 could be better but it's adequate.  I had the Bifrost with the Lyr and I'm hearing things I didn't hear before.  It may well be the v200 for sure, but the optional dac is good enough so that I don't miss the Bifrost or any other dacs I had.  But than most of my dacs were budget dacs accept for the dac in the corda symphony.

 

So if you have the Bifrost already, than use it with the V200.  But if not, get the optional dac until you have enough for the v800.

guess I'll just do that (use my bifrost + v200 for the time being). For the people that own the V800 + V200. What Xlr cables would you guys recommend. (not cheap ones but not really expensive ones either)

I got these ones:

The Belden 1800F, 1 foot, the price is pretty reasonable, $23.50 for one, so close to $50 for two. Really makes my v800 and v200 sing biggrin.gif

What made me purchase from them is their "About me": http://www.bluejeanscable.com/aboutus.htm

seems honest.

The V200 is a gem.. I curretly have it paired with the Yulong D18 as DAC, Signal silver balanced interconnects and the HD800 ...the sound is pure bliss. My Mjolnir will be soon on the for sale forum.

Yes, I'm listening to JH13pro with it.  And it's amazing.  The layers.  I never had layering of music with a tube like 3D (holographic) even with the Mad Ear and Woo Audio tube amps.  For that matter, even when I had the JH-3A with JH16pro which was supposed to be the best.  I didn't get this kind of magic.

 

I've played for little over 10 hours but had it on for 48 hours and it just keeps getting better and better.  Best amp I've ever heard.  And all I'm using at the moment is the optional dac.  But even than, it's the best I've heard with JH13pro and LCD-2.

I ordered the Vioelectric V200 from Aphrodite CU 48 hours ago, but have not received a confirmation e-mail or any thing of that nature to let me know it went through alright.  I emailed him yesterday to check on the status and more so to make sure they got the order and payment, but no reply as of yet.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing how the V200 matches up with the TH-900 and the rest of the headphones I own.

I thought you prefer the schiit in the Mjolnir thread and plan to sell the v200 ?

I'm listening to the combo right now and they pair beautiful together. I'm thinking of upgrading my dac but I haven't found any dac that really impressed me yet.

Nice photo.  You managed to capture how the TH-900s look in person.  I am going to be using the Gungnir and will report back once I can on how the two pair with one another.

thanks I had to take a few to get that. The urushi is stunning in person but it's hard to capture its look under daylight and the head-fi uploading image mess up with it a bit 

here's the original

I'm looking forward to your impression. I personally prefer a small footprint dac some thing similar size with the v200 but the v800 didn't give me a solid sonic upgrade for the price so still on the hunt :)

That is a common experience with Aphroditecu29.  Robert has serious family commitments that keep him tied-up.  He's currently re-cabling my HD800s and it sometimes takes a week or two between communications . . . I figure it's worth the wait . . .

post #1842 of 2660

I'll admit one of my vices is impatience.  I have been spoiled by Amazon Prime that when I order something it can be here the next day.  I ordered from Robert because all reports seemed to say that it would be shipped and received quicker that way vs. ordering direct.  

 

I'm learning patience is a necessity and of course family always comes first. :)   Thanks for the information, btw.

post #1843 of 2660

Hello, so there should be no worries ordering from aphroditecu29. I am from Canada and I am thinking about ordering the v200 from him shortly.

post #1844 of 2660

If the CAD:EUR ratio is good for you; why not order from Violectric directly over at Europe? 

post #1845 of 2660

I did not think of that but i will check it out. Thanks
